We were walking along Jack London Square when we saw a cop interviewing two guys who obviously were not the yuppies that the authorities want here. We stopped and asked what was happening. Here’s what they told us.
This sort of harassment is part of the campaign to gentrify Oakland. It is also part of the campaign to get rid of those living outdoors. They were driven out of the Albany Bulb and out of Albany. They are being driven out of San Francisco. Now there is the beginnings of a campaign to drive them out of Berkeley and Oakland. Where are people supposed to go?
We urge people to send a complaint about this sort of harassment to the management at Jack London Square along with a copy to us. They can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org
